Rachel McGeever

My name is Rachel, and I'm a senior software engineer at Red Hat. I sometimes blog about technology from the perspective of a pragmatic developer, other times I blog about rainbows and unicorns. Also, I’ve been eating cheese since I grew my first baby tooth.

I was born in the beautiful Dominican Republic and my family brought me to the US when I was just a few years old. At university I studied Chemistry, but decided to do what I had been doing for fun for most of my life — lounge around, eat cheese, and write code — instead. I have an innate curiosity and unquenchable thirst for learning about everything.

♥ JavaScript, Node.js, React, Angular, Linux, Java, chemistry, dance (ballet, jazz, funk, modern, merengue), Jeep Wranglers, learning, outdoors, Western frontier & SciFi films, animals, cheese, documentaries, swinging from trees, climbing (trees, walls, everything), and breathing.
